#TChat Radio is all new on Tuesday, May 21, 2013, at 7:30 pm ET (4:30 pm PT). Doesn't everybody love their job? Unfortunately no. Too many are not happy, disengaged and feel they just aren't being recognized. At all. Major shifts in technology, social media and management strategy (or lack thereof) have drastically changed how we work, and not for the better. In fact, lost productivity of actively disengaged employees costs the US economy $370 billion annually according to Gallup research. But when employees are recoginized and rewarded, they are more engaged and emotionally connected to their work, sometimes upwards of four times more so than their unrecognized counterparts. How should we do that today? Well, #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman welcome this week's guests, Stan Phelps, founder of 9 INCH Marketing and author of "What's Your Green Goldfish," and S. Max Brown, Principal at Rideau’s Recognition Management Institute and keynote speaker and keynote speaker. This will be another great "world of engagement" show, so we hope to see you here! **SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: We’re thrilled to announce our first “world of work” partnership — with Achievers.

Dale Carnegie Training recently released new findings on employee engagement and the results proved to be quite intriguing.

You want an engaged, productive workplace? It all starts with a healthy employee.There are a few realities workplaces need to pay closer attention to. Consider the following facts:
· Employees are working with fewer resources and spending more than 60% of their days at work.
· Obesity, high blood pressure, anxiety/depression, diabetes type 2 and many other chronic conditions is on a rapid incline.
· Health Benefits, short term/long term disability costs are rising year after year.
· 40% of workers feel overworked, pressured and squeezed to the point of anxiety, depression & disease.
· In Canada, health & productivity costs totaled 17% of payroll vs. 8% just two years ago.
By reviewing the above statements, we hope to set the tone of our discussion. Join us for an eye opening conversation.
